6-7-11: #2012

 Yesterday, Anthony Weiner’s reality got seriously augmented. The Democratic Congressman from New York admitted that the now world-famous photo of a pair of grey underwear sent from his Twitter page was, in fact, eponymous. Rep. Weiner hasn’t resigned, but we imagine he’s not going to run for president.

Today, we hear from our social media analysts Nathan Jurgenson and P.J. Rey about the role social media will play–indeed, is already playing–in the 2012 presidential campaign.

Nathan and P.J. are Ph.D. candidates in sociology at the University of Maryland, and they blog at Cyborgology. Check out their latest posts about the 2012 campaign.
